Kimaiyo defies LSK to extend Lamu curfew

21 October 2014, 18:05 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo has extended the curfew in Lamu, in disregard of comments from the Law Society of Kenya over the state of affairs in the region.

Kimaiyo announced Tuesday in Nairobi that the order would be extended by a month to help security agencies continue with their efforts to restore peace and stability in the area.

He said that curfew would extend to November 23, 2014.

This is despite a 14 day order last week by the Law Society of Kenya for Kimaiyo to revoke the curfew or face court action.

The LSK argued that the curfew had run Lamu to the ground and that normal economic and social activities had been totally disturbed  by the curfew.

" We give him 14 days to revoke the order or we go to court to contest it, LSK chair Eric Mutua said last week.

But following the kidnap of five Kenyans in Lamu last week, the order, according to Kimaiyo is necessary to enable normalcy return to the region.

The curfew was effected in July by Kimaiyo following the death of over 100 people in Mpeketoni, Witu areas in attacks by unknown persons.
